Welcome back to Term 4 at Marlborough. Hopefully everyone has had a good rest after a very busy end to Term 3 and you are ready to go with another busy term ahead.
This term we have our Milestones at Marlborough celebration, 2017 Prep Transition, Yr 6 Valedictory Dinner, free after-school trial Mandarin classes (more information will come out about this on Tiqbiz shortly) and a whole range of learning activities and events to engage our whole community.
Term 4 is an exciting time for students as they consolidate their prior knowledge from earlier in the year, look at achieving learning goals they have set for themselves and begin to get ready for transition into the next year level and secondary school.
As a school we are constantly working on preparing children for changes that are ahead of them (both expected and unexpected) and giving them opportunities to develop their resilience and a growth mindset with which to face challenges in a positive way.
As a staff we are constantly trying to display a Growth Mindset to our students and you can also support this at home. Some simple statements that help us to have a Growth Mindset are:
- I can learn anything I want to
- I learn from my failures
- I want to challenge myself
- I feel like feedback is constructive
- I am inspired by the success of others
- I always persevere, even when I’m frustrated
We look forward to continuing to work in partnership with all of the families within our community to enable our students to achieve outstanding success socially and academically. We hope you all have an exciting and rewarding term and thank-you for your involvement and support with your children’s learning.
